What is the software issue?
Samsung has identified a software issue with certain Samsung A11 phones purchased between July 6th and August 10 th across different wireless providers. If not on updated software, some customers may experience limited or no access to the internet or have trouble making/receiving calls.
Some users report the iris scanner fails to register new entries after installing software version G965USQU2ARE6. A blank screen could be seen instead of the expected eye alignment screen during setup.
Some users are reporting "Unable to install all contents 1 code: 400" appear repeatedly.
The root cause is actively under investigation and devices should not be replaced based on this behavior. Follow these steps to resolve:
Ensure handset is on Sprint mobile data (not Wi-Fi)
Open phone dialer and enter ##BRAND# and select YES. This will resend the ID payload to the handset without removing any personal data.
If the handset is in weak Sprint coverage or if the error returns, please to move to a location in good Sprint network coverage and try again.
If ##BRAND# does not resolve the behavior and error 400 continues to appear, perform a full factory data reset.
Settings > General management > Reset > Factory Data Reset
This communication will be updated as root cause is identified.
